Master Bedroom Progress

Once again you probably thought I’d forgotten all about my bedroom makeover. Well, I have actually been s-l-o-w-l-y plugging away at it.

The other day I bought one of these…

And then, cause I needed a black-out option too, I also bought one of these…

Now, before you think I’ve gone a little crazy buying multiple blinds when I actually only have one window to dress I do have a plan (kinda).

As you probably already saw, I also finished (and have now hung!) this…

Which, as I sadly suspected might have been the case, now causes a clash with this…

2010 Bedroom Vignette (2)

Though don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll find somewhere else to show-off my beloved starburst mirror.

Sooo, now I’ve come up with a fresh idea for dressing the wall that mirror previously occupied which involves some of these…

And these…

And last but not least, I found some AWESOME lamps!

Well, when I say “I” I actually mean a friend of mine (thanks Maria!) who graciously came to my rescue when I was stumped on which lamps to go with. These aren’t super, super cheap though they’re not outlandishly expensive either (I’m lucky enough to be getting them at wholesale price which is ace).

Only problem is….I won’t have them til early December – oh poo!

Never fear though, I’m not gonna wait that long to share my bedroom makeover. I’m hoping to post about it sometime soon (featuring my current lamps of course – which, truth be told, actually fit in quite nicely anyways).

  15. I can’t wait to see what you come up with! I am looking for a window solution that will block more light…those vinyl rollers seem to be the only good option so I am anxiously waiting to see how you conceal them.

  20. These window coverings will work great in this room. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty. Thank you for writing and as a special thanks to you and your readers, I would like to offer a 20% off coupon using this code upon checkout: BLG20.

  21. Well done You! I’ve been doing my house for 30 years and I’m still waiting, for that perfect something to fill a spot that has been empty for a decade. Waiting until December for that lamp, is nothing. I do have that task lamp, as well. The best homes are slow accumulations, of wonderful things within your budget, over time. That is the math. During inflationary eras, I worried that I had missed the boat. The pendulum always swings, and patience is a virtue. Right now, I’m snapping up bargains in this bad economy, and I saved money for this moment. They might go lower, but I’m willing to pay current prices now. You seem to be very thoughtful about your home and you should be.
    Take your time,
    Best,
    Liz

  24. Wow! What a great, beautiful solution. Thank you so much for sharing, and saving us the “trials and tribulations” of getting it right. You’re awesome.

    Thanks, too, btw, for helping me get started. Things are moving slowly but surely because of your help! You’re simply the best.

    Best,
    Sondra
